Fill Your Cup With A&W For National Root Beer Float Day!

A&W provided me with a gift package and compensation in exchange for this post. All views and opinions expressed here are my own. 
Everyone goes back to school at different times, but here in Southern Indiana, our kids are about to return to school at the beginning of August. Knowing that our free summer days are winding down we've been trying to fit in as much fun as we can. After receiving our party kit from A&W the kids were begging for a Root Beer Float party, and I was happy to oblige! The simple flavors of A&W Root Beer with a scoop of ice cream are just the ticket for fun on a warm summer day. Did you know August 6th is National Root Beer Float Day? That foamy goodness will make you smile anytime but today is a call for us all to join in on the fun.

My kids are easy to please when you tell them it's time for a party. We kept it simple and enjoyed the traditional Vanilla Ice Cream with A&W Root Beer with some new cups and party straws, the perfect party mix!
The kids all got to use our new plastic A&W cups while I made my float in my old-school glass mug so I could join the party. Our new color-changing cups turned orange with the cold touch of ice cream these sweet floats helped us spread smiles to all the kids playing on our porch. Check out that foamy top, yum!
The fun thing about drinking a root beer float is when you get to add more A&W to watch it foam up all over again! The Booper was excited to drink down his float with the mustache straw!
So raise your glass to National Root Beer Float Day with me and tell me your favorite type of Root Beer Float in the comments. Be sure to visit for more float recipes like a Salted Caramel Root Beer Float! For even more float inspiration visit A&W on Instagram.
